Aaron Carter, the former child star who released a 3X platinum album at just 13 years old, was found dead on Saturday at 34.
The musician was discovered Saturday morning at his house in Lancaster, Calif., according to TMZ, who first reported the news.
Carter, best known for his breakthrough LP Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) and singles like “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “I Want Candy.”
He was the younger brother of the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter
Aaron Carter got his start opening for the ensemble before appearing on programs like Lizzie McGuire and seeing the world on his own.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ earlier this week that the 34-year-old “Aaron’s Party” singer — who was previously arrested for a DUI in 2017, was pulled over by cops on Tuesday morning following reports that he was carelessly driving a recreational vehicle.
Carter was cleared after officers conducted field sobriety tests, which he passed.
The outlet noted that it was a windy day on Tuesday, which could have accounted for the RV weaving on the road.
The troubled musician seemingly posted about the incident on Instagram shortly after he was allowed to leave, writing, “When you do the right thing, you don’t get in trouble. Do the right thing, that’s what you do.”
Just a few days later, Carter was found dead in his bathtub, and his cause of death is unknown at this time.
